Specialty Plasticizers

Industry Overview:

Specialty plasticizers promote plasticity, flexibility, and workability in many of the materials that form the foundation of our urban and residential infrastructure. They are used as additives in concrete and wallboard mixtures as water reducers that improve workability and strength. They are also used as additives in cables and wires, roofing and flooring, and even traffic cones. Beyond all else, though, they are utilized with PVC, to make it flexible and bendable, opening the door to a wide array of diverse uses for this king of plastics.

Construction is only one of the places that plasticizers have found a home. They can also be found in cosmetics, toys, food wrappers and packages, printing ink, and in controlled-release medications, among hundreds of other uses. Energetic Plasticizers are even used as additives in rocket propellants, improving propellant properties, serving as a secondary fuel source, and increasing the propellant’s total yield, allowing rockets to go farther with less fuel.

Common Applications:

  • Phthalates – high molecular weight, low molecular weight
  • Plasticizers – internal, external, primary, secondary, etc.
  • General purpose plasticizers
  • Fast-fusing plasticizers
  • Bio-based plasticizers
